Hi guys, Baruthulous here. I think Boba Fett is the most badass thing about Star Wars, and can't wait until his movie in 2016!! To celebrate, I decided to make my first ever cosplay costume. I've always wanted to partake in the cosplay, but haven't for whatever reason.
So using Wizard of Flight's templates, I have embarked on a quest to make my own Fett cosplay.
Here is my progress so far...
The ear pices have been the most annoying so far, I think they turned out ok so far though. Nothing that can't be fixed during the bog and sanding phase. Same as the weird bulging that's happening in the dome.
I have a couple of questions though....
1) The dent on the front that is supposed to be part of the helm, how do I do that?
2) For hardening up the cardboard, what do I do? I have seen some people use layers of different ratios of waterva, but others that use fibre glass resin...wich way is best for results, but also good for n00bs?
3) The visor...is there a place to buy them ready made? Or do i use a piece of perspex, cut it, heat and bend, and then tint?
Thanks in advsnce, and I'd love to heare any criticisms or tips
